Vacation

My motorcycle adventure vacation ride started in North Carolina. It was a cool, wet, overcast ride to Front Royal. Then we rode the entire length of a very wet, very foggy Skyline Drive.







Pictured are Malcolm and Kevin, friends on the trip. After Skyline Drive, we rode the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway.



A visit to Mt Mitchell, he highest peak in the east.



A picture at the highest point on the Blue Ridge Parkway.





We stayed at a motorcycle hotel in Robbinsville, NC. NEAT.





Unfortunately a hundred miles from home, my back tire ran over a walnut, I lost control, went off the road into a bit of a slide and then down. The bike is fine, but my left wrist has a few fractured bones. Urgent Care felt it should heat nicely, but they want me to see an orthopedic surgeon. I go Tuesday.

I'm selling my bikes. Last year I broke my ankle, this year my wrist. A three wheel Can Am is in my future :D

I'll be taking a break from blogging for a month or two, or at least until I learn to sew with one hand.

Oh NO!! I hope it is a simple fix and quick heal. I think you are right, time to retire from those bikes - been there, done that, but at a much younger age. Take care sweetie.

Oh my goodness... hope you're not in a lot of pain! How frightening... take care of yourself!

that has to be the biggest peril for motorcycles, things on the road. I worry about my brother and sister in law when they come all the way to IL from TX every year on their Goldwing. So far they have stayed safe. I hope you heal fast.

Oh Sheila, I am so sorry that you broke your wrist. That definitely makes quilting difficult! Thanks for stopping by and GET BETTER SOON!
